First of all, I wish to thank the entire ISACA Orange County Chapter for electing me to serve as the next Chapter president. I am under no illusion of the huge shoes I have to fill. I know firsthand the effort required to run the chapter from working alongside Victor over the past two years - the multiple late evening Zoom meetings and WhatsApp messages, bouncing ideas of each other on how we can develop as a chapter and offer value to our esteemed members. I hope to continue and build on the success of the last two years.
As we go into our July recess, my team of directors and volunteers are working behind the scenes to ensure we have a rich schedule of events for the second half of the year. As we continue to live under the uncertainty of COVID-19, most of our events will remain virtual for the time being till we all feel safe enough to reconvene in person.
We are also aware that several of our members may have been impacted as a result of the pandemic from job losses to furloughs, etc. we will endeavor to keep our job boards updated with vacancies that we are aware off and also provide as much free training and education programs to ensure we keep our skills up to date and relevant especially for those seeking new opportunities.
I have a few favors to ask of you.
If you have not already, please follow us (ISACA Orange County) on LinkedIn (linkedin.isacaoc.com

Secondly, please engage with us – send us your suggestions for speakers, discussion topics, events, training programs, etc. Anything that helps us serve you better.
